Classic Stuffing


I know Thanksgiving has come and gone but stuffing is great any day of the year! I make this as a side dish to chicken, pork chops, ham and even fish! This can also be used as a layer for so many different kinds of savory casseroles! So don't just think of stuffing as a Thanksgiving food! Try it for your everyday meals also! I love to surprise my family with this delicious and easy side dish throughout the year! This is ready in minutes with just these 4 ingredients plus salt, pepper and water! I always make the full bag because my family likes to eat large portions...and they always want leftovers the next day!

Classic Stuffing

INGREDIENTS:
3 ribs celery - diced
1 large onion - diced
2 tbls. butter + another 4 tbls
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 cups water
14 oz. bag seasoned stuffing cubes - I use Arnold or Pepperidge Farm

DIRECTIONS:
In a very large pan over medium heat melt 2 tbls. butter.
Saute the celery and onions in the butter with the salt and pepper, until very tender.
Then remove from pan and set aside.
In the same pan melt the remaining 4 tbls. butter.
Then add in the water and bring to a boil. Once boiling remove from heat and add in the
the entire bag of seasoned stuffing cubes, tossing to coat evenly. Then add back the sautéed celery and onions and toss again to combine.
Serve immediately or keep warm in oven until ready to serve.
Serves 8-10

  1. Your photos are getting a lot better…what kind of camera are you using and do you use a light box?

    1. Thanks Lindy! It's not the camera, its the Picmonkey photo editing site that makes my pics look good! I love that site! My camera is just a 10 year old Kodak point and shoot camera...no light box. Just one reflector lamp. These 2 photos were shot with natural light. But I do want to make a light box someday! =D
